Becoming a real estate investor is much more feasible than most people think. There’s no question that real estate investing comes with risk, like any investment. But with risk can come reward, and real estate has that in spades.
“Real estate is one of the few investments where your upside is truly unlimited,” says Than Merrill, CEO of San Diego’s FortuneBuilders and CT Homes. “With the right property in the right location, you can make 15% to even 30% on your money.”
“You can make money in hundreds of different ways through investing in real estate, and that keeps it interesting,” says Realtor® Ed Laine, partner and broker at Miller Laine Properties in the Seattle area.
